I have the older model which is a model 760. Over the years I've had two, one a .270 and the other a 30-06. Still have the 30-06 which I use as a night hog gun. Very good guns. If you are accustomed to the 870 shotgun you will really like the 760 / 7600 as they are so similar. I used to use the .270 for deer until it was given to someone else in the family. I shot my first deer with it when I was 5 back in 1965.
Strive to live up to the opinion that your dog has of you.
